Columbia SC

Charleston and Greenville get all the press seemingly but it's an interesting, vibrant city that also has a college town buzz (U of South Carolina) and a fairly low cost of living along with a moderate four season climate.

I was going to post this but you beat me to it. I agree wholeheartedly.
Olympia, WA is another that comes to mind, although it's really no secret to Washingtonians.

Agreed about Albany-and nearby Troy seems underrated in some aspects too. I'll probably be up there in a few weeks.

Also, Charleston, WV.

"Capital" refers to the city.
"Capitol" refers the building.

Just clarifying...

I'd have to say Juneau, Santa Fe, Tallahassee, and Columbus from places I have visited. I bet Boise, Sacramento, and Salt Lake City are underrated.

I was just going to comment on that, thank you.

Sacramento is definitely underrated IMO, even within California. When most outsiders think of California, it's Los Angeles and San Francisco almost universally and then San Diego. However, Sacramento is vibrant, diverse and beautiful. It's also cheaper to live there than CA's other better known big cities.

St Paul is probably underrated because it is a nice city in its own right but is totally overshadowed by Minneapolis next door. Most people who haven't been to Minnesota don't even realize that it is its own place with its own vibe and not just an extension of Minneapolis. It has the best historic neighborhoods in the state and a beautiful downtown full of old buildings and classic public spaces.

I thought this thread was going to be about underrated architecture. Would have made a better thread if you asked me.
Was hoping to see little talked about but really grand Capitol buildings.

Iowa has a very ostentatious and ornate capitol.
